EDITORS’ NOTES

Venice introduces Anderson .Paak as a thoroughly West Coast artist with an omnivore’s appetite for diverse styles of urban pop. The lushly seductive “Might Be” woos with whispered come-ons and a sample from ‘90s R&B girl group Xscape, while “Put On” nearly tips into full-on drum ‘n’ bass. Meanwhile, .Paak—a singer who sometimes raps—celebrates his hometown of Venice, CA, on “Dogtown,” and spits plenty of pimp talk on “Already.” Still, he isn’t afraid to admit that women sometimes get the best of him on the jittery-rhythmed “Milk n’ Honey.”
